She identified group of nongamers as the opponents of her claim.
'Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World' is a book written by Jane McGonigal. In her book, she presents a counterargument that why games is good for human and future of humans.
Jane McGonigal is a Game programmer, who adovates the use of technology and games. In her book, she presents her agrument in favor of using games and asserts that games tends to fulfill humans needs and they are doing so not just in present times but doing so since ancient times when Atys was King of Lydia. During those times, the people were faced with famine and to face the situation they come up with a resolution of involving in games to distract themselves from hunger and thus it helped them to survive for eighteen years.
She asserts that opponents to her claim will be a group of nongamers who makes up of nearly half of the US population. She asserts that nongamers would not agree with her claims as this group of people perceive gaming to be a waste of time.

Mars is, on average, about 50 million miles (80.5 km) farther from the sun than Earth is. And the farther a planet is from the sun, the longer its year. The lengths of planetary years are governed by precise rules. Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) discovered the relationship between the length of the year and the radius of the orbit that applied to all planets, but it took Isaac Newton (1642–1727) to explain this pattern.
As a planet travels in its almost circular orbit, it's continuously accelerating toward the sun. This is due to the gravitational attraction between the sun and the planet, which is stronger the closer they are to each other. But the stronger the pull of gravity, the greater the planet's acceleration, which results in the planet's revolving at a higher speed. This is a good thing—it's what's necessary to keep the planet in its orbit, falling around the sun instead of plunging into it. So the inner planets are compelled to rush around their orbits, while the outer planets revolve around the sun at a leisurely pace.
Scientists involved with the robotic exploration of Mars need to know martian time so they can plan a rover's activities to take place during the martian day. So of course they use a Mars clock. You can download NASA's Mars24 Sunclock to see local martian time for yourself.
The statement basically states “Books should show us the real world and not a fantasy where we are thought to believe things. It must guide us in our time on Earth.” You are supposed to provide your opinion on what you think.
I would write something like this:
Literature has been around for centuries, maybe even millenniums. It has brought people out of the depths of despair and helped them over come problems in day-to- day life. There are all kinds of books out there - fantasy, adventure, romance, but should all those books be forgotten and thrown out for man only to read non-fictional books that are factual rather than interesting?
On one hand, books should be used as a tool for living. They should be informative and contain facts that could benefit us through out our lifetime. An interesting quote is, ‘Knowledge is the key to life’ therefore reading non-fiction books will help us in the future and reflect our actions when we grow up.
On the other hand, books have been brought to life to transport a person away from his troubles into a fictional world, where they are happy and blissful. Taking away such books and reading only factual information will not benefit a humans mind, for they will grow old and grumpy; they will obtain a lot of information but they will be dissatisfied with life - so what is the point of that? Moreover, books are books. No matter the genre or the origination of the book, it will teach us grammar and vocabulary which is vital for a human to know; it will make us emotionally happy and we will still gain knowledge from it.
In my opinion, Forster is wrong because a work of literature MUST provide a scope for the imagination and it must alter reality a little but for us to imagine - for without imagination, we are nothing.
I hope this helps, and please tell me what grade you got as I would love to know:))
